Dick Jenkins will be sadly missed - he was a lovely person and a gentleman.  It was always a pleasure to talk with him whenever I met him at shows and at the BFFS's Annual General meetings in April. 


In the early 1980s Dick
Jenkins was one of a very few people in the UK from whom we could obtain flats.  The first flats I bought from him were the Golberg 'Marlburians' c.1700-20 - and some of them
still
need painting!

[/size]Dick was always very helpful when I needed a figure identified,[/color]
[/size] and, sometimes, would [/color]
purchase figures for me if he was going to Kulmbach. Occasionally, Dick would send me some flats but said I could return them if [/size][/color]
I wasn't satisfied -  obviously, he didn't want to take all
[/size][/color]
my 'pocket' money.


W
[/size]e will all have fond memories of Dick Jenkins.[/color]

Dick’s figures represented many of my favorites - Alice in Wonderland, Flower Fairies and Wind in the Willows all being stand outs.  Definitely a unique force in our tiny community and apparently a nice gentleman.  He will be missed.

This is really a very sad news, I was trying to get in touch with Dick since two weeks, waiting for his return from the hospital!!

 R.I.P. Dick, such a nice person, and so much dedicated to his business and passion !!!!

It is with heavy heart that I inform you that Dick of Western Miniatures died yesterday in hospital, his wife was by his side.
